For filmmakers of all ages!
Now in its 23rd year, the Wexner Center’s annual Ohio Shorts competition showcases the best of Ohio-produced short films—from documentary, animation, or dramatic narrative to anything in-between. Our screening event and award ceremony on April 27 features food, cash prizes, and opportunities to network with fellow filmmakers and film professionals.
The deadline for entries for this year’s event has been extended to Friday, March 15, 2019.
One entry per person is permitted. All works must be submitted by Vimeo or YouTube URL and must be accompanied by an entry form (available January 2). Unless the final work is on 16mm or 35mm film, selected artists will be asked to submit their video as a high-resolution QuickTime file for the screening. Adult Division (19 and older) entries must be no longer than 20 minutes and Youth Division (18 and under) entries no longer than 5 minutes. Works must be produced in Ohio within the last 18 months. Previously submitted works will not be accepted. Selections will be made by a panel of Wexner Center staff and outside judges and notification will be made by email on Tuesday, April 9, 2019.
The screening will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2019, at 7 PM. Each entry selected for the showcase will be awarded a $50 screening fee and receive a complimentary ticket for the evening. The jury and audience award prizes ($500 and $300, respectively) will be announced at a reception following the screening.
